Mjollnir (384) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2010
UPDATED: APR 26, 2010 375mL bottle. Pours dark red to black without much of a head. Faint aroma of burnt malt and yeast extract. Tastes like a slightly burnt chocolate biscuit really. Light-medium bodied, soft carbonation with a lingering bitter and slightly astringent finish.

DeliriumT (354) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours black with white head. Aroma is harsh metallic hops with roasty chocolate and caramel hints. Flavour is overwhelmed by the poor hops which buries the more robust flavours which Guinness is known for. Do yourself a favour fellow Aussies, steer clear of the extra stout and go for the "draught" version in the can ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - AUG 15, 2011
Very big taste, bitter sourness due to the amount of iron from what I hear, on tap in Dublin it comes out like toast and milk

Jessop (206) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2012
Dark brown in colour with a persistant mocha foam. Light malty aromas show through a hint of yeastyness. The flavour rich malt and quite an estery dry finish....

mattyhennessy (179) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - JUL 31, 2013
Pours jet black with a light tan head. Taste is very metallic and masks the chocolate and coffee flavours. The hops are not balanced. Little aroma present. A drinkable stout, but not a memorable one.

Shark_Pants (130) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2014
Pours cola colored with ruby highlights, large 2 finger frothy head. Aromas of leather, Vegemite, sweet toffee. The taste is similar but as others have mentioned, it has a metallic edge & lacks the creaminess of proper Guinness. Medium bodied. Not horrible but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours black with a thick brown head,with some good coffee aromas,taste is fairly standard but miles ahead of the draught. -

Kurtos (87) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a nice cola colour. Aroma. Toasted sweet nutty aroma. Taste. Similar to aroma, with hints of coffee and chocolate. Overall. Quite average, nothing great about this beer, nor nothing too bad.

hallzee (46) - Gold Coast, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2011 Pored from a 750ml bottle, for such a big name I’m sorely disappointed, i hope it tastes better on tap. Not much of an aroma, i could pick up a bit of roast though. quite dry in the mouth, roast, toffee and a slight red wine flavour. Slight bitter finish.

Marc18 (28) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 11, 2013
Could not believe how poorly Guinness has travelled to Oz. The hop balance is off, leaving a sharp metallic taste with none of the substance I expect as a devout Guinness fan. Comparing this version to the tap versions found in Dublin means ratings suffer terribly, sadly. At least much of the warming appearance remains.
